Re: 351ci blocks
Well it seems that my post of a few weeks ago has got some minds wondering.
I am in the process of putting a 427 stroker windsor into my EL Falcon, and just do it guys, it will fit!! The only drama is dependant on your inlet manifold selection, and clearance, but thats it. The towers on these late model cars WILL NOT interfere with a decent exhaust, for example, a V8 Supercar uses C3 or so Yates heads, with very high exhaust ports, and approx 1 1/8 inch further out than a Windsor head, and before you say its only a 8.206 deck, compared to 9.5, remember the towers get narrower towards the crossmember, and they have the engines very low in the bay. I have spoken to Custom Exhausts here in Brisbane, and he feels that he can get a very F****ING decent set of pipes hanging off my engine, even with 7 litres, and 550 odd horsepower, cats were his only real concern, so get to it guys, lets give it to these "special cars for special people" wankers and show em what Going Ford Is The Going Thing really means.
